Inflatable kayaks--pros and cons

Jump to last reply

I guess this could be seen as a lounge topic, but since I'd want to buy and use it in a few places in the Northeast U.S, I'll try here first.

I've seen people putter around in those inflatable kayaks. I wonder if anyone here has one or has used one.
Is it a waste of $300-400 to buy what could be basically be a very expensive pool toy?
A regular kayak is out of my price range, and I'd have no place to store it. But an inflatable one that I could just throw in the trunk of a car and hop into when I pass some small lake or pond sounds really good to me.

Pros and cons? If you can recommend specific brands and models, or know things to look for or avoid that would be really great.
